Dinner for Two: Chipotle Steak Tacos

[Photograph: Kerry Saretsky]

If you thought you couldn't justify taco night for just two people, try this version that has all of the flavor, none of the labor. A can of chipotle in adobo makes the perfect quick spicy, smoky, savory marinade for grilled flank steak, sliced thin and piled into soft, warm corn tortillas with chargrilled green onions, store-bought sliced cabbage, torn cilantro, a spritz of lime, and a ten-second homemade avocado crema made from whizzing up an avocado with some sour cream.

Hot, messy, cool, and delicious. All that with just one pot, and almost no effort whatsoever.
